I'm thinking why does Warren Haynes do a tribute and not one member of the GD Is doing it?

That's not a knock on Warren at all - it's a stab at rest of band mates. warren is a warrior and hard working man for sure.

Does the rest of the world see some significant need to tribute the man but his supposed "brothers" not? Or are they too busy keeping the "vibe" alive and making fools of themselves falling on stage. Or do they just not care as long as 77 box set sells.

**yawn**
Every time one of Garcia's songs is played, it is a tribute to the man. Sorry about your "life sucks" attitude.

Real,
Pretty presumptuous of you to think you know anything about my life attitude based on an opinion you don't like about some musicians.
Watch you are not projecting your inner self on others.

I stand by my opinion. I still find it odd for a touring tribute of a band leader to not be joined by band members who he stuck with for 30 years.
Especially a band like the Dead who would never have been who they became without Garcia. Please don't try to tell me Weir would have made it. As for Phil, he never would have attempted base without Garcia pushing him to do it. So his great talent may never had been unleashed.

I love what the Grateful Dead created but can't say I'm thrilled with what they became afterwards.

As far as I can tell, Jerry's bandmates pay tribute to his life and work every day and in every concert.

Warren is especially adept at paying tribute since he resonates more with the lead guitar / songwriter role that Jerry was in more than Phil or Bobby or anyone else that used to be in the GD that's still alive. He's a better singer than any of them too.

Lots of love for Warren. The 2009 Dead with Warren was the best post-Jerry music. I thought Furthur had them beat after I went to a few shows but I take all that back. Warren > John. Just my two pesos.

Warren may be better than John. I haven't heard the latest post Garcia incarnation. But I will argue that Jimmy Herring, on the 2002 TOO tour, was the best Jerry substitute yet. I was at the '09 tour opener in G'boro and Warren made The Dead sound like ABB.

Don't get me wrong I really like John, his study of Jerry's technique and presentation is unparalleled and it shows in his work with Furthur. I have tickets to Furthur at Red Rocks and the Greek in Berkeley in September.

Furthur with John sounds more like GD than The Dead with Warren. Nevertheless, Warren's got so much soul. I'll never forget the feeling of him leading the band through "Into the Mystic" on that warm summer night in Michigan in 2009.

Jimmy's a great guitarist - but he's missing the singer/frontman capacity.

Yea, I probably came across as a Warren hater, but I'm not. It's just IMHO, Warren truly shines when he plays solo acoustic.

Hahah I agree. Warren doing Soulshine solo acoustic is like going to church.

Funny how we both redacted our down-talking of these musicians as the discussion progressed.

I was kinda suckered into going to see THE DEAD 2009 version w/ Warren Haynes.This was at the I-ZOd Center.1st thing I noticed being a 2 nighter the 1st which I was at was not even close to selling out .So much so they had whole sections of seats covered in black fabric so when the lights went out it looked full.Now out they come and all I remember was they opened w/ U.S.Blues and I thought ok Warren Haynes can play w/anyone. 2nd,the drums were miked so loud I couldn't take it . I didn't stay for the encore and to say did I relive the past ,the answer would be a big NO.I wasn't impressed at all and I think they charged a pretty penny for those shows.

Warren doing Shakedown Street is awesome. Check out the show I went to ... probably the best show with this lineup...
